Services exist to help homeless
Tuesday, April 24, 1984The Daily. Tar Heel3
By DAN TILLMAN
Not everyone in Chapel Hill lives in
homes, dormitories or luxury con
dominiums, and not everyone visiting
town can afford to stay at the Carolina
Inn. People pass through Chapel Hill
every day with no place to stay and some
permanent residents live on the streets,
said Al Dawson of the Inter-Faith Council
for Social Service.
A lot of people that come to Chapel Hill
and decide to stay are homeless because
they have psychiatric, alcohol or drug
problems, said Jane Cousins, a social
worker for the Chapel Hill police.
"They're just crazy enough that they'd
never get hired anywhere," she said.
"Some don't want to work and are just
able to live on the streets and be successful
in their opinion. A lot of people buy a one
way bus ticket to Chapel Hill when they
are released from Butner or other mental
hospitals in the state."
Cousins said the street people usually do
not cause trouble in town.
John Woodard, owner of Sutton's
Drug Store, said he was familiar with
several of the street people and filled
prescriptions for one of the men who had
psychiatric problems. "As long as he takes
his medication he's fine," Woodard said.
"But when he stops taking it he just loses
his rocks and sometimes has to go over to
South Wing in Memorial Hospital."
Top of the Hill employee D. Holoman
said one of the street people seen frequent
ly around the store is very polite and ar-

"The Town Council sees it (the
homeless) as a major problem," said Tina
Vaughn, director of the Chapel Hill
Human Services Board. "I did a study to
determine how many there were on the
streets. It's a moderate problem. There are
only six to 10 people down on the streets.
Transients are more of a problem."
Vaughn said the council is concerned
about all people without homes because
they could freeze in the cold or die from
Dawson said the figures on street people
are probably low because a lot of them
sleep in abandoned cars, behind lumber
yards or on private property and do not
want to reveal their hideouts. He went on
to say one alcoholic suffocated last sum
mer while sleeping in an abandoned car.
Currently, there are limited sources of
help for street people and for transients in
town only for a few days, Cousins said.
' "If they just have needs for food and
housing, we refer them to the Community
Kitchen or the shelter (operated by the
Coalition for Battered Women)."
The Community Kitchen, located on
Rosemary Street in Carrboro, is operated
by local churches in the Inter-Faith Coun
cil, and serves meals to 65-75 people a day,
The Durham-Orange Coalition for Bat
tered Women operates the only area
shelter for men needing a place to stay,
said Glenda Harris, shelter coordinator.

men, iimits people traveling through
Chapel Hill to three-day visits. While stay
ing in the shelter, the men are given food
vouchers for two meals each day at
McDonalds, she said. Only men may use
the shelter, because other facilities are
available for such groups as battered
women or pregnant teens. "I don't think
there are any housing services for families
in place right now," Harris said.
The Joint Orange-Chatham Communi
ty Action Agency helps families and in
dividuals passing through Chapel Hill who
need temporary food and lodging, said
Gloria Williams, executive director. She
said most of the transients the organiza
tion helps are migrant workers trying to
get from one section of the state to
another. Most of the migrants from
eastern North Carolina are traveling to the
mountains to pick apples when they need
help in Chapel Hill.
Because temporary shelter for transients
and street people is largely unavailable in
Chapel Hill, Dawson said the Inter-Faith
Council has requested funds from the
town to build a shelter to help those with
no place to stay. "The shelter is needed,"
Dawson said. "Right now the only option
we have is putting them up in hotels."
The Town Council has requested pro
posals from organizations serving Chapel
Hill, concerning solutions to homelessness.
Vaughn said 15 organizations submitted
proposals for dealing with various
categories of the homeless, but the Inter
Faith Council's plan is the only one that
deals specifically with people living on the
streets in Chapel Hill.
The Town Council will hear recom
mendations on proposed plans at a May 14
meeting, Vaughn said. Two days later the
Council will decide if the Inter-Faith
Council will get money for a new shelter.
"The problem we have now is that we
don't have a facility," Dawson said. His
organization hopes to have some ideas for
locating the shelter when the Town Coun
cil considers their proposal. "We are com
mitted to opening a shelter, hopefully by
the end of the year to serve at least some of
these people," he said.

New low-cal dessert like ice cream
By NANCY ATKINSON
Desserts have never been considered
Their reputation is one of sugar
with no substance, just empty caloric
They are a dietary luxury in today's
health conscious world.
But Brooklyn's David Mintz has
taken something with substance and
made a dessert out of it.
Tofutti, made from tofu, tastes like
ice cream and frozen yogurt but has
more nutritional value. The non
dairy, protein-rich dessert has no lac
tose, cholesterol, butter fat or preser
vatives, and it is lower in calories
only 128 in four ounces.
"It's selling wild everywhere it
goes," said Grant Heinefield, vice pre
sident of sales at Tofutti to You, Inc.,
in Charlotte. The company opened
business four weeks ago, making
North Carolina the 10th' state to
market the dessert.
Using product demonstration and
word of mouth for advertising, Tofut
ti to You has been present at many re
cent spring festivals. Of the people
who have sampled the product, 90
percent bought more, Heinefield said.
Some people who cannot have milk
products are "so happy they cry
because they can eat something that
tastes like ice cream again," he said.
Comparions to ice cream and
yogurt are bound to be made, but ac
cording to Heinefield tofutti is
definitely better. "I know what all
goes into ice cream these days, and it's
almost not ice cream anymore. Frozen
yogurt leaves an aftertaste, and it just
doesn't taste good."
Tofutti tastes good, he said, every
one of its six flavors: vanilla, choco
late, strawberry, maple walnut,
peanut butter and banana pecan.
"You get so you can't stay away from
it," Heinefield said.
